Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has fired DSS boss Lawal Daura.
Media aide to the Acting President, Laolu Akande, announced Daura’s sacking on Tuesday.
“Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has directed the termination of the appointment of the DG of the DSS, Mr. Lawal Musa Daura,” Akande said in a tweet.
“Mr. Daura has been directed to hand over to the most senior officer of the State Security Service until further notice,” he said.
Daura’s sacking comes on a day the DSS barricaded the entrance to Nigeria’s National Assembly.
Akande did not state if Daura’s sacking was connected to the siege many called “unconstitutional”.
